Good Christian Values

That War On Christians you keep hearing about?

How Christians are being persecuted and abused and driven out of the public square?

Oh, yes.

This school in Delaware not only has school prayer -- forces prayer on its students, whether they are Christians or not -- not only uses public school time and funding to encourage and promote Christianity (and only Christianity), not only did nothing to stop the (actual) persecution of non-Christian students at its school, it then, when the Jews had the termerity to object, brought out the torch-bearing mobs in response:

The complaint recounts that the raucous crowd applauded the board's opening prayer and then, when sixth-grader Alexander Dobrich stood up to read a statement, yelled at him: "take your yarmulke off!" His statement, read by Samantha, confided "I feel bad when kids in my class call me Jew boy."

A state representative spoke in support of prayer and warned board members that "the people" would replace them if they faltered on the issue. Other representatives spoke against separating "god and state."

A former board member suggested that Mona Dobrich might "disappear" like Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the atheist whose Supreme Court case resulted in ending organized school prayer. O'Hair disappeared in 1995 and her dismembered body was found six years later.

The crowd booed an ACLU speaker and told her to "go back up north."

In the days after the meeting the community poured venom on the Dobriches. Callers to the local radio station said the family they should convert or leave the area. Someone called them and said the Ku Klux Klan was nearby.

(Via Shakespeare's Sister:

This is what angers me, when Christians over on TownHall and like places get all pious about how they're "persecuted" and how Christians are the "real" minority these days. Right. Sure. On what fucking planet could anything like that happen to a Christian in United States? In their fucking wet dreams, Christians are persecuted in this country.

I know how Christians act, I've seen it first hand. How sad that people have to go through that kind of crap, especially a child.
